Descriptive geometry 1300-OGPR1ZW
The lecture covers:
Introduction to the descriptive geometry, sort of projections, history of developent of projection methods and mapping of elements in space – 1 hour.
The projection with elevations: the representation of lines, planes, curved surfaces, analysis of mutual relations of geometric figures in space and flat projection – 3 hours.
Presentation of the parameters of geological structural surface on a map. Selected measurement issues: selection of scale in geological works, distortion of distances and angles in superelevations of stratigraphic section, apparent and true dips of structural surfaces – 4 hours.
Geometrical representation of the results of drilling and mining – 3 hours.
Computer visualization of measurement structures in 3D – 1 hour.
The use of computer graphic software in the analysis of geological studies – 1 hour.
Monge‘s projections: image of geometrical elements and measurement issues in relation to the analysis of large-scale photographs of geological outcrops – 2 hours.
Type of course
After the course a student:
draws basic elements of space on a plane in the projection with elevations,
analyses mutual relations of geometrical elements in space and in flat projection – perpendicularity and parallelism,
determines measurement structures: angles and true length,
presents parameters of geological structural surface on a map,
determines true strike and dip on the basis of the results of drilling,
determines true strike and dip on the basis of measurements conducted on walls of geological outcrops,
determines true thickness of a layer on the basis of the results of drilling,
uses the principles of geological intersection,
analyses the geological structure on the basis of an intersection map as well as morphological and geological cross-section.
Requirements of the exam:
- knowledge of the meterial presented during the lectures,
- knowledge gained during exercises.
